Hoover Washing Machine problems


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I've had my washing machine over 2 years without any problems until I came back from a couple days away. The washing machine appeared to be powered on (not on a cycle) while in the off position. The display flashes no errors but where it should flash digits and letters looks just like gibberish. As soon as I tried to unplug it the whole house tripped out (doesn't seem to be a problem now). It looked as though it might have had a power surge while I was away as the display looked scrambled. I have replaced the control panel but it is still doing the same thing. I was wonder if there was anything else I could check? I have attached a picture.

Thanks in advance

Hello. The control panel displays what the PCB tells it to so a display fault could be caused by either or both. I never recommend people replacing control panels or PCBs. They aren't cheap, you can't send them back and it's rarely 100% certain that they are the cause of the fault or the only fault.

I managed to locate the correct control panel (a used part) for £10 so I thought I'd give it a try. As for the PCB I'm not sure how lucky I will get. Thanks for the response.

 

Edit

It is the PCB. I had a wasp problem the same time that this died. Taking the cover off the PCB a have just found a bloody wasp in it, coincidences aren't all that real. Thanks again!
